Loan Boxes

Our diverse collections at Saffron Walden Museum enable our learning team to offer a broad range of loan boxes.

The boxes contain real or replica artifacts to handle and study so users can get hands-on with a topic. Most boxes also include activity ideas to get you started using the box.

Anyone can hire a loan box, you don't need to be from a school. They are perfect for class projects, home learning or organised groups.

Loan boxes are charged at £18 (inc. VAT) per half term (6 weeks).

A list of our loan boxes can be found below. To find out more, contact our Learning and Outreach Officer Charlotte Pratt.
